How to Wear – Print Trousers

D&G On the Catwalk Courtesy of

Prints are everywhere this season – one of the more tricky items are the print trouser. On the catwalks clashing prints were teamed together but it’s not a look we are likely to see on the high street unless it’s on the very young, who can probably get away with it.

If you think that you couldn’t wear a print trouser think again. Below are some options for dressing them up or down, including printed jeans, capris and palazzo pants.

Just be aware that if your bottom is the area you want to detract attention from that wearing a print on it is unlikely to achieve that aim! If that’s the case wear a longer top, or go for the palazzo style trouser which is more forgiving than printed jeans.

Another “safe” tip is to go for a print which includes black like here, and wear a pair of heels to lengthen the leg:
